Chiranjeevi (birth name is "Konidela Shiva Shankara Vara Prasad" on August 22, 1955), is a popular Tollywood film personality, also called "Mega star" He was awarded the Padma Bhushan award, the second highest Padma award bestowed by the Government of India.


Chiranjeevi was a student at the Madras Film Institute and an amateur stage actor. Before completing his training at the film institute, he attended auditions and selected for the film Punaadi Raallu(1978). However, Pranam Khareedu was his first film released in theaters. His first public performance was in the Republic Day parade ballet of Andhra Pradesh on 26 January, 1976. In the film Paleru Narsayya, he acted without makeup and impressed the prominent members of the industry. Famous directors Bapu and K Balachandar, who had attended the preview of this film, offered the roles in their respective movies. In Balachander’s Idi Katha Kaadu he acted in a negative role, but in Bapu’s Manavoori Pandavulu he played one important role. For this movie he received a remuneration of Rs.1116.

Bigger than Bachchan - 1992

Extending his unrivaled box office success through the early 90s, Chiranjeevi delivered two super hit movies Kondaveeti Donga and Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari in 1990. Of the two, the latter film, which attracted both children and adults, is remembered also as one of the finest creative films of his career. Continuing to rewrite box office records film after film, he delivered during 1991-92 three blockbusters Gang Leader, Rowdi Alludu, and Gharana Mogudu in succession. These films have collected unprecedented box office revenues, while turning the Telugu film industry a multi-crore business. At this point, his remuneration crossed one crore first, and later turned multicrores, making Chiranjeevi the highest paid actor in India. Befittingly, Film Fare magazine published about him a cover story “Bigger than Bachchan” in 1992. The film Mutha Mesthri released in the following year did not create any commercial records, but it has shown Chiranjeevi as a political leader, raising the speculation of his entry into politics.Since then Chiranjeevi’s entry into politics has been widely debated in Andhra Pradesh, but his floating a political party remained uncertain until 2008 when he finally forayed into politics.
